Merry Christmas, friends!  We had a wonderful Christmas and I hope you did too.  The kiddos are in bed so I thought I'd hop on my blog and finish my not-so-simple Christmas tour.  Surely, no one will read it since it's Christmas and people should be celebrating, not reading blogs.  But just maybe, some of you, like me, can steal a moment with your Christmas cookies and laptop, and enjoy some quiet time browsing some pretty Christmas pictures.  This is for you!

If you'd like to see Part 1 of my Not-so-simple Christmas, check it out here.  Part 2 features my living and dining room and is mostly Silver, Gold and Bronze .  Also, my "fancy" tree. :)

The reason for the season... feeling very blessed this Christmas. 

 Love my nativity set my mother-in-law gave us. Very pretty and the pieces aren't breakable, my little one loves to carry around baby Jesus and always puts him back in his bed.  The other day my little one,  who just turned 2, brought baby Jesus to me and told me "Baby Jesus has stinky buns".  After I stopped laughing he then told me "Baby Jesus needs clean diaper".  Love it!

 I have a small Department 56 Christmas village.  Every piece has a special meaning behind it.  My husband got me this church the year we got married. ( isn't he sooo sweet! :)

This little Santa and his reindeer fly over the Christmas village... my boys LOVE this. :)
 My dining room table centerpiece is kind of a hodgepodge but I like it.  The glass candle holder was $6 on clearance at TJ Maxx a few years back, it is from Williams Sonoma and it is huge!  The wreath is from Pier 1, 90% off last year after Christmas sale, $4.50.  I stuck some gold and bronze X-mas tulle stuff around the base of the candleholder to fill the space.

I made this no-sew pillow out of a placemat!  No, seriously!  I got the idea from another blog (if it's you, tell me and I'll give you the credit, sorry, I don't remember)  I didn't do anything to it but stuff it and glue the fabric back together.  It is perfect in my living room... can you believe that is a placemat? 

These 2 tall and skinny gold reindeer were new additions this year, of course they were a deal!

Love how they look in my bronze and gold Christmas tree forest.

We had a very beautiful white Christmas, did you?

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! xoxo
